It Shall Return

Last night I was reminded of why I love Italian wine. Nick at Bari Ristorante poured me a glass of Vietti Arneis & it is a truly exceptional white wine. A few months ago I tasted this stellar wine at a trade show for their local distributor. I was blown away then & I was blown away last night. It's crisp, floral, nutty, gorgeous acidity & a nice mineral note. Unfortunately, the distributor is out but I'm told that it is on its way from Italy so have patience. It shall return...& when it does I'm snatching it up!

I love Vietti but find them very rough to sell in our market. We don't have any whites though...gonna mention it to our Italian buyer.

The arneis is out of this world Sam!

Their nebbiolo is lovely as well.
